    20-17-15 - Status Quo; where do we go from here?

    After some twists and turns the gap is now just the same as post FO16: 17-14-12. I remember very well the general view at the time: - Djokovic seemed like he would go on forever - Fedal was done winning slams Then... Murray rised and Djoko had the biggest slump in his career. Sir Andy...

    Why are the "younger" players weak on return?

    Im sure im not the only one wondering why so many of the younger players have problems getting to break points. So i checked some stats. This is really just the "return game won" stats on HC from 2011 and 2018. In 2018 i have looked at the players born from 1989 to 1999 (LostGen and NextGen). In...

    If 04-07 is weak era, why isnt 08?

    Nads took a step up on grass/HC, Fedr a step down. Not that big a difference for Rafa though (at least on HC), he won one HC masters in 07, and one in 08. He reached W finals 06/07, won it in 08. His service games won stats and return games won stats on HC was 83,94%/27,82% in 07, 86,86%/30,05%...

    Federer reveals French Open plans hinge on two things.

    Dont know If this is old news or been posted before, but anyway: “I have to listen what my team suggests and how my body feels,” he said. “Last year, clay wasn't in my plans. “If I play this year, I may combine Paris with maximum one or two tournaments" Link...

    Federer and the "easy" years 04-07. If big4 were born in 1981...

    Yeah im a fanboy alright;) Its a frequent claim on the forum that lord Fedr only is where he is today because of the easy years 2004-2007, and that he would be far away from the current slam count if he had to play the rest of peak big4 those years. I have always thought this is a strange claim...

    Weak Era - where did it go?

    It just struck me that there has been very little weak era talk sinse AO. It is a well known fact that "Weak Era" is simply defined by that a player you dont like is dominating. Shouldnt we expect a sh1tstorm after AO? But...Djoker-fans have no interest in this because Djoker just dominated...

    Monfils stats

    Monfils is currently ranked nr 6, yet he did not defeat a single top6 player in 2016:eek::eek:. His two victories vs top10 players was vs Raonic (ranked 7) in Canada and Tsonga (ranked 9) in Monte Carlo. Only a true GURU can make such an achievement:)

    Andy's decision...

    Of course he, his family and team probably know whats best. But i just cant see why he is skipping Toronto. He already has the olympic singles gold. He also has three slams. What he really is missing is YE#1 and nr 1 rank. I mean, he isnt far behind Djokovic at YE#1. If someone else has posted...

    Peak Federer - when?

    Hi! Have me excused if there is a poll regarding this, i tried to search the forum. I have been in a lot of discussions where this subject comes up, and it seems that people have very different opinions. Some mean his peaking now, others say he peaked 06/07 etc I have posted a poll, but will...

    Fedalovic - who would be most emotional?

    I know, i know, meaningless thread:D. Still, i started imagining the scenarios and couldnt agree with myself who would be most emotional...

    The lost generation?? (players born 90-95)

    This is not intended to be a Fedalovic thread, although thats probably impossible:D. I have witnessed some discussions here on the forum, where some argue that its a new era, and that "30 is the new 25!". Some have even stated that the time where the players under 25 years win Masters and...

    Djokovic and the future

    I am no tennis spesialist, but love to watch. I have read many people saying Rafa's decline was expected because of his tough and demanding style. Many people also say Rogers more economical style is partly why he still is top 3 in the world. Of course people ages differently, but what can we...

    Will Kyrgios win a slam or more?

    In my eyes, this man/boy really has the slam-potential. Beating Berdych again! I mean, Nishikori, Berdych, Gasquet, Tsonga are strong top-10 players, but did they ever have the slam-potential? I doubt it... Maybe Raonic if he can stay free of injuries. I'd love to see Nole and Kyrgios in the...

    Rafa and Federer H2H – looking behind the numbers

    The numbers look ugly, 11-23, no doubt, but what if we try to dissect them? And please, take the effort to read :). And excuse my english;) If we look at male-tennis purely objective, age is without any doubt an important factor. If we look at Nadals career, I think we should give him the...
